- Calvert Manor Healthcare Center, LLC25.Dec 2017
Variety of healthcare positions and expertise.
No. There are a lot of cliques amongst the nursing units. Very little interactions between administration and floor nurses. A lot of passive aggressive behaviors and bullying.
Freedom to work independently
Very poor communications. Should keep all emails and get things un writing to protect yourself.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Yes. They do expect the older nurses to keep the pace of younger nurses. Computer knowledge is needed despite age/previous experience.
Overall compensation for your work
You are paid time and a half for anything over 40hrs/week and shift differential.
Office / Work Environment
The company does try to recycle and tries to limit waste.
Families and education are not a concern for this facility. Calvert's priority is Calvert. They expect floor nurses to work 40-60 hours without complaint and little regard for staff burnouts. Vacation time and PTO days are often refused due to increased staff turn around or state minimal staffing requirements. Calvert encourages nurses to furthere their education, however, they will not work around your class/clinical schedule.
Yes and No. Calvert has the potential to be a great company. However the lack of respect and regard for their staffs health and needs are a disgrace to healthcare!
They are desperate for staffing.
Elevator and handicap doors available.
Yes & No. The patients are wonderful. The nursing/patient relationships are amazing. The time permitted to spend with each patient is very limited and borders on neglect. Limited staffing places the nurses and cna's in a dangerous predicament at times.
Inclusive / Diverse
I believe Calvert values diversity. I believe Calvert minimizes staff opinions and doesn't allow for staffing to express their ideas with respectful feedback.
Suggestions for improvement
- Get out of the office and onto the floor. Get out there and work alongside your nurses. It's easy to judge and criticize staff from behind a desk when you have no idea what goes on.
What I like about the company
I liked the size of the facility. It was a small town facility onced owned by a private family.
What I dislike about the company
Sold to a corporation, the moral and patient care declined.
